I'm running 42.01 right now, and I got over a 1000 point improvement versus the drivers as of 8/30/2002 (I really wish I knew what the version was on that). I never used 41.09, so I can't comment on it.
Depending on what type of card you have. If it is an older card like TNT,GF2 I would use somthing from 29.xx or 30.xx drivers but for the GF3/GF4 cards 40.72 is the best WHQL set I have used but 42.01 (DX9) works well for me also
Just tried the 42.01 (was using 41.09) and for my system ..garbage ..benchmarked the same as 41.09 but medal of honor spearhead started showing up grapihcal errors and also tribes 2 so i have gone back, Tv tool arsed up as well.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
